This scam has been around for a while, but not enough people know about it since there are people who bid on the stuff. After all this time I am surprised he hasn't gotten much better at it.

Yes, they are out there
I spotted one on eBay and emailed all the bidders on the second auction. When they look too good to be true AND they only take wire transfers instead of Paypal AND they are not in the CONUS --- it's a fraud!!

How about his one.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...RK:MEWA:IT&rd=1
I emailed asking if this was the plank version or the heli version. yesterday it was $1300 and change.
Yes it is an aircraft version with racheting speed control on the left stick.
Buy-now price is 1900 usd, including shipping charges and insurance taxes. It will be delivered to your home.
I am from Chicago, but at this moment I am in London. The item is at TNT office in Chicago, packed and ready to be shipped.
I am an ebay square trade member and they will guarantee for me in this transaction.
I will deal only through ebay.
Please reply asap.
Thank you!

FOUND ANOTHER EBAY SCAM
This is what I wrote to eBay: (you guys beware on eBay)


" I found a fraudulent auction. This is NOT the first one I have found. The number is 6006822254. The real auction just ended, 6005361452. PLEASE STOP ALL THE FREAKIN FRAUDULENT people from using eBay!!!!! You need a better system!

I will post this warning across ALL RC SITES I am linked with to warn my fellow hobbyist. Fix the problem!! "

RR guys beware. If you spot something, please let the rest of us know.

Thanks all

Maybe we can ask mark if we can put up an Ebay Scam Alert Post and post the ebay numbers for easy searches?

ebay replied to me with the usual statement telling me to contact the seller about using my advert. i already told them it had nothing to do with me and was only reporting a possible scam. shows how much they care. as long as their palms are crossed with money they don't give a rats.

I wonder if Mark Ryder would be willing to start a specific category for people to provide inputs as to potential fraud listings on forums like Ebay? It would be good to have the ability to desiminate these findings as timely as possible.
